About the location
Ashbourne 6 miles; Matlock 9 miles.
Hognaston is a peaceful village on the southern fringes of the Peak District. Hognaston is an ancient settlement and has a long and diverse history, but is now better known as being close to Carsington Reservoir. The village has two cosy pubs, a Norman church, a village hall and a range of community groups. Just 6 miles away is the market town of Ashbourne with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don't expect a bargain!
